Solid podcast

Lacks diversity

It’s a very insightful podcast, its unfortunate that no brown professionals are featured on your podcast. It lack’s diversity and in one of your episodes you are featuring a well known exhibitor of ethnic prejudice from a PWI.

Director

The questions asked are very insightful.
The subject matter will be very encouraging to people with autism and motivate them to strive to accomplish all they can.

Having a professional speak with autism about their challenges and accomplishments will encourage and motivate others with disabilities to strive for their goals because they hear a person with autism who has achieved their own goals personally and professionally.
